Israeli Prime Minister warns of punitive measures as tensions rise
Israeli Prime Minister threatens to expedite Palestinian home demolitions among other measures as clashes continue in the West Bank.
Israel has announced that it will implement a series of punitive measures against Palestinians amid an escalation in clashes between Palestinians and Israeli security forces in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
This morning, Israeli soldiers faced resistance from Palestinians near Surda, the Ramallah-area village where the military plans to demolish the family home of Muhannad Halabi, a 19-year-old who was shot dead after fatally stabbing two Israelis in Jerusalem on Saturday.
